WWE Hall of Famer “Superstar” Billy Graham is now on life support and his family said his situation is serious.
Valerie, wife of the wrestler known for his prowess as a bodybuilder and wrestler shared news of her husband’s health condition on Monday, May 15. She said;
“Please urgent prayers needed for my husband. The doctors wanted to remove him from life support tonight. I refused.
“He’s a fighter and his will is strong even if his body isn’t. God is our hope.”
A GoFundMe account set up for Graham revealed that the 79-year-old is dealing with a “myriad of very serious health issues” and has been in the ICU for over three weeks.
